FC Fans,

Our friends at the Jewish Chicago Historical Society are putting on a fascinating tour this Sunday (August 26):

The big-shouldered splendor of 21st century Chicago can trace its history to the creativity and enterprise of our city's Jewish merchants, builders and artists. Professional Chicago Tour-Guide Association member, Herb Eiseman, takes you from today's architectural wonders in Millennium Park back to the Jewish community's beginnings on Lake Street.

View the Hands of Peace sculpture at Loop Synagogue, a monumental tribute to patriot Haym Salomon, landmark Chicago architecture, a memorial to Chicago's own Irv Kupcinet...and much, much more - all with expert commentary.

Meet in the Chicago Cultural Center's South Lobby,
78 E. Washington St.

CJHS members: $15 Non-members: $20
